Best party hotels in Ibiza for the perfect mix of sun, dance and luxury

Do you like electronic music and are all about that party life? Then Ibiza is your island!

Does your heart beat a little faster and your feet move to the beat when you see David Guetta, Sven Väth, Loco Dice, Solomun or Amelie Lens hitting the stage? The mecca for all techno and house fans, Ibiza offers fun and unforgettable experiences seven days a week between May and October.

To help you plan the ultimate party getaway, we’ve rounded up the best party hotels in Ibiza and the best spots to go on the island for lovers of music and dance.

Get this party started! Ibiza’s best party venues and clubs

The two prime party locations on the island are Eivissa (Ibiza Town) and San Antonio. The latter is especially popular with Brits. The clubs, Amnesia and Privilege, are located between Ibiza Town and San Antonio; while DC10 is close to the airport.

If you’re keen on going to well-known Ibiza party spots, Ushuaïa, Hï and Pacha, then head down to Ibiza town. An exceptionally beautiful open-air club is Cova Santa. It regularly hosts festivals and events related to Ibizan culture such as the WooMooN festival. In addition, the island offers countless beautiful beaches for visiting during the day, if you long for a bit of peace.

Do you want to stay where the party starts? Then Ushuaïa is perfect for you and your friends because that’s where you can get both a club and a hotel in one place!

Every day, on the huge stage in the pool area of the hotel, you can watch some of the biggest DJs in the world perform. From Sven Väth to David Guetta, all genres of electronic music are well-covered. While the DJs do their best on stage, you can party in the crowd or on your own balcony.

If you’re more of a night owl and want to relax during the day, look for a room in the Ushuaïa complex that is the farthest away from the stage and take earplugs with you.

All that dancing is bound to give you an appetite, so head to the on-site Sir Rocco Beach Restaurant for exceptionally delicious Italian dishes. Be sure to order the Burrata and Spaghetti Bolognese. As a vegetarian dish, I recommend the pizza with fresh vegetables.

Celebrate with the stars at this pool party hotel in Ibiza

Right next to the Ushuaïa and thus close to the nightlife is the Hard Rock Hotel. Stage-outfits worn by Britney Spears, Madonna and rock legends of the world adorn the lobby of this iconic hotel. Incidentally, in the lobby café, I like the freshly squeezed juice to recharge my batteries after a long night of letting loose.

“Are you ready for a holiday full of music at the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza?” isn’t just a hotel slogan, pool parties are the order of the day and every Friday, there is an event on the schedule. Since you’re already partying like a rockstar, why not live like one, too? Book yourself into the Rock Star Suite and enjoy 165 square metres of living space, two bedrooms, gaming consoles and a private hot tub.

Even rock star needs a break to recharge their batteries. A special highlight for all yoga and meditation fans is the Rock Om® Vinyasa Yoga. Accompanied by rhythmic sounds, this kind of yoga gives you an extraordinary ‘flow experience’.

A tasteful design hotel for music lovers in Talamanca

Another great spot to call home is Talamanca, a district of Ibiza Town. From your hotel room at Hotel OD Talamanca, enjoy views of the sea and the sand-coloured city of Ibiza. Breakfast at this hotel is not to be missed with a delicious buffet with local specialties and caviar on offer.

The pool on the terrace ensures that, for the morning after, you have a necessary dose of rest to prepare yourself for the next night’s shenanigans. Once rejuvenated, the pre-party can start in your own room with great sound quality guaranteed in the suites and lounge of the OD Talamanca, with Bowers & Wilkins speakers integrated into your room.

Just five minutes’ walk from the hotel is a legendary restaurant, Fish Shack. What started as a simple booth on the beach has evolved into an absolute hotspot. The concept is simple and without unnecessary bells and whistles: plastic chairs, fresh fish and potato salad. In numerous DJ interviews, Fish Shack was always on their list of favourite restaurants in Ibiza. So watch out, your favourite DJ may be sitting across the table from you.

A stylish stay in Ibiza town

Design hotel Sir Joan combines a look of authentic Ibiza with the party lifestyle of the island. If you feel like you have a bit of hippie flair and are a fan of the Bohemian style, then this is your perfect home-away-from-home as the hotel was built and furnished for the free spirits among us.

The location in Ibiza Town promises legendary party nights. The Pacha Club can be reached from here by foot and Dalt Villa, located in the old town, can be reached in 20 minutes also on foot. Also in the nearby harbour, there are always exciting parties, so you won’t be bored here.

Right in the hotel are two top restaurants, the Izakaya Asian Kitchen & Bar and The Butcher. My favourite is the latter. The burger restaurant is really world-class—from truffle burger and hot dog to peanut butter shake, everything is tasty here!

Party and sleep like the DJs of Ibiza

As the name implies, the Hotel El Pacha belongs to the Pacha Club. Most of the DJs who play at the club at night are housed in this hotel, so catching a celebrity in the lobby is almost guaranteed. Opened in 2003, El Pacha is a luxury hotel with all the amenities needed to make your party vacation as relaxing as possible.

The best thing about the hotel is the location. All you need to do is cross the street and you are already at the famous club. This year, DJ greats like Dixon on Fridays, Solomun Sundays and Claptone on Mondays have their so-called ‘residencies’ at Pacha. With some room categories, the entrance to the Pacha can be booked directly, or included in the room rate, saving you from the ticket stress and long queuing in front of the club.

When you need to refuel the next day, be re-energized at Passion Café Marina. The cafe is just minutes from the hotel towards the harbour. From smoothies to superfoods and acai bowls to juicy pancakes and banana bread, you’ll find everything that makes a foodie’s heart beat faster. The drinks are also top-notch. If you fancy a chai latte or turmeric latte, you are in the right place.

Spend some time in a relaxed atmosphere while in Ibiza

Imagine yourself lying by the pool, in a comfortable four-poster cabana, with a fresh fruit juice in your hand. Your feet gently bob to the Balearic sounds that echo from the DJ console to your ears. In front of you, a colourful plate of the finest sushi and there’s nothing else you can do but smile. This is the feeling of an early afternoon at the Destino Resort—a sister hotel to El Pacha and part of the Pacha Club.

For you, the party starts in Destino and ends in Pacha or in the associated Cabaret Club Lio. The hotel is located in Talamanca and is the perfect place for dignified pool parties during the day. If you want even more relaxation, book yourself in for a spa treatment or take a dip in the Jacuzzi.

The simple, white Ibizan design makes your stay feel like an authentic experience on the island. When booking a hotel room, you will receive free admission to the Pacha Club and will save you time and higher prices in the evening.

Party in the boutique hotel of a party legend

The boutique hotel Pikes Ibiza is located on a hill near San Antonio, a popular party spot on the island. This quaint hotel is a true institution in Ibiza and was best known for its former founder and namesake, Tony Pike. The party legend regularly welcomed international stars such as Grace Jones, Julio Iglesias and Freddie Mercury in his Finca. In addition, Wham’s famous music video for ‘Club Tropicana’ was shot here.

In 2011, the new owners renovated the house, but still retained the original charm of the traditional hotel. Each room has its own character and immediately, the relation to the stars and starlets of this world is apparent. Although the hotel is located in Sant Antoni de Portmany, a party town, it is located in a quiet area overlooking the bay.

The hotel hosts regular pikes parties and events with well-known DJs, for example, Pikes on Sundays. The party starts with a relaxed lunch by the pool. But before you get your groove going, I recommend you order a delicious Bloody Mary.

A LGBT-friendly hotel in the center of San Antonio

The stylishly decorated The Purple Hotel caters exclusively to LGBT travellers looking for a holiday in a family atmosphere. For the days after wild nights, the hotel restaurant offers fresh, healthy cuisine that will quickly get you going again.

The spacious rooms with balconies are modern and attractively furnished, and the city’s famous nightlife with clubs, Es Paradis and Eden, and countless bars are right outside the hotel. The harbour, the promenade and the beach are all within walking distance.

We shouldn’t forget the most important meal of the day. For breakfast, head to The Café Bondi, located directly on the harbour. The drinks menu includes fresh juices, smoothies and milkshakes, while the large selection of coffee specialties also ensure a caffeine kick in the morning. Various toasts, delicious egg dishes, acai and salad bowls and airy pancakes enrich the menu, which lists almost everything a breakfast fan could desire.

Affordable party hostel in the center of San Antonio

Family-run Hostal Adelino is located in the centre of San Antonio. Many shops, bars and the beach can be reached quickly and easily on foot. Adelino isn’t your typical hostel with shared rooms. The rooms here are either single, double or triple, so you can have your little slice of peace and recover from the previous night of partying.

Each room also has its own bathroom and most even have their own balcony. It gets even better because there’s also a sun terrace and the outdoor swimming pool, which is calling your name to relax during the day and sip cocktails.

If you like to party at sea? From San Antonio, there are regular party boats. When buying your ticket, be sure to look for ticket packages that include club entry. The best-known providers are Float Your Boat, Lost in Ibiza and Pukka Up.
